Happy Howlidays with Christy!

It’s time to use all those Lawn Fawn critters in festive holiday designs! Link up your entry photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and follow the challenge theme. This challenge will be open until Sunday, December 4 at 11:59PM ET.

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Holiday Critters Challenge! For this one I decided to make a fun indoor scene with sweet pups getting up to a bit of holiday mischief. I combined images from Furry and Bright and Joy to All, stamped in Jet Black ink and colored them with Copic markers. I trimmed them all out with the matching dies.

Then I created a background using some patterned paper. I chose a tan print from the Let It Shine Starry Skies 6×6 pad to be my wallpaper and the Light Brown Woodgrain Cardstock for a floor, with a strip of leftover Bristol Cardstock for the baseboard. Then I arranged my pups and the holiday elements on the floor, leaving room for a large sentiment above.

Then I spelled out my punny sentiment using Finley’s ABCs die cut from Barn Red Cardstock, and white heat embossed the rest by selectively stamping a phrase from Ho-Ho-Holidays onto Ground Coffee Cardstock. I die cut that with an Everyday Sentiment Banner and trimmed it down to have one flag end and glued that at the top. I finished this card off with a bit of Stardust Stickles for some shine.

If you’d like to watch this card come together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty! Thanks so much for stopping by!


Have a happy and crafty weekend!

Samantha’s Clever Dream Big Card

We can’t wait to see how you will Make the Sentiment the Star! Link up your entry photos HERE! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies, stencils and papers and follow the challenge theme. This challenge will be open until Sunday, November 20 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha used lots of creativity to Make the Sentiment the Star!

This cute little squirrel from Let’s Go Nuts is dreaming Big Acorn dreams with the help of Stitched Thought Bubble Frames! Samantha suggests that he’s in a forest with Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop.

She created the custom sentiment by combining Finley’s ABCs with part of the Giant Sending Big Hugs die. There’s lots of glittery shine from the Sparkle Autumn cardstock.

Thank you for sharing this cute and clever card with us, Samantha!


Happy crafting!
